I will be remembered at Asante Kotoko - Fabio Gama

Former Asante Kotoko midfielder Fabio Gama believes he would be remembered for his key contribution to the team’s victory in the Ghana Premier League.

After nearly two years with Varnamo and J-Sodra IF in Sweden, the Brazilian joined Asante Kotoko in 2020 and went on to achieve success in only two seasons.

The two-time African champions finished second behind Hearts of Oak, who won the championship in 2020/21 but came back dramatically to end an eight-year trophy drought in the Ghana Premier championship.

The 30-year-old demonstrated his talent and consistency for the second year in a row, as he was one of the key players when the Porcupine Warriors won the title at the end of the next season.

Gama departed Kotoko owing to the expiry of his contract after that victory and has subsequently expressed joy in his time at the club.

“We failed during my first season because we were not able to win the trophy and finished second on the league table.

“But we were the champions in the second season so for me I achieved my goal at Kotoko because the club had gone far before winning the Ghana Premier League so I believe that I put my name in the history books of the club forever after winning the trophy,” he told Ghanasportspage.

“As a member of the 2021/22 Premier champions, the fans will remember the name. I believe that and it is very incredible for me,” he added.

Gama after leaving Kotoko in July 2022 joined Bahrain out Al-Muharraq on a year deal

Asante Kotoko SC has officially terminated Abdul Fatawu Safiu's contract due to medical reasons.

A club statement by Asante Kotoko on Monday evening indicates that Abdul Fatawu Safiu’s contract has been terminated due to medical reasons.

According to the Kumasi-based royal club, the former Al-Sinaa SC striker failed a mandatory medical assessment test as required by the Ghana Football Association, following the announcement of his signing on the registration deadline day.

The returnee striker who joined Kotoko from Eleven Wonders in November 2018, ahead of the 2018–19 CAF Confederation Cup campaign has been duly informed about the health-related issues which could rule him out for a long period.

Below is a full statement by Asante Kotoko

Asante Kotoko can confirm that it has relieved forward, Abdul Fatawu Safiu due to medical reasons.

Asante Kotoko entered into an employment contract with the player in order to meet registration deadlines as announced by the Ghana Football Association, and had to ensure that the player undergoes the pre-competition medical assessment which is the basic and compulsory requirement by the GFA.

This medical assessment was duly done awaiting further tests. The further assessment by the club’s medical team revealed other health related issues which could rule him out for a long period. The club, after being informed about the situation, concluded that continuing an employment contract with the player would not be of full benefit to both parties – the club and the player. Details of the specific medical condition have been clearly communicated to the player.

It is imperative to note that the GFA has rejected his registration, so keeping him would not be in the best interest of the club and the player, hence the decision to end the relationship.

The club wishes Abdul Fatawu Safiu the very best for the future and wish to assure him that he forever remains one of us, and he is welcome to serve in any capacity in the future.

Signed….

Management.
